Re: Clueless anti-virus products/vendors (was Re: Sober)

The RFC process itself is broken when clueless vendors treat RFCs as inviolable specs and implement according to the RFC even when they find flaws in it. If they want to remain true to the RFC process, they should not implement dumb things found in an RFC, instead they should write and submit a new RFC correcting the error and explaining the right way to do things.
Exactly. The nice thing about standards is that there are so many to choose from! Why not add a few more?
